Can Drinking a Glass of Wine Keep Bed Bugs Away?

The common bed bug mainly survives on human blood, but what happens when that human has upped his or her blood alcohol content with a few glasses of a nice red wine? New research from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln suggests bed bugs are not as fond of alcohol as their boozy hosts, which may lead to fewer bug bites.

According to the study, bed bugs prefer alcohol-free blood to blood with alcohol in it; the higher the blood alcohol concentration (BAC), the less the bugs eat. And, because there is a direct link between blood intake and reproduction rates, those bugs also lay fewer eggs.

“[Bed bugs] need a blood meal to grow and to molt and to reproduce,” explained Ralph Narain, a Ph.D. candidate who conducted the work as part of his dissertation. “And one of their main hosts are humans, and we consume a lot of stuff. Alcohol was one of the easier ones to start with.”

Narain presented the findings last week at the National Conference on Urban Entomology in Atlanta.

How bed bugs imbibe

While it’s fun to imagine graduate students knocking back beers and feeding bed bugs on their arms, Narain took a more scientific approach in his experiment. He mixed 200 proof ethanol — the same compound estimated by a Breathalyzer — into four samples of expired blood from the Nebraska Blood Bank until he had BACs of 0.010, 0.025, 0.050 and 0.100 (0.08 is the legal limit for driving). A control sample contained no alcohol.

Next, he selected 20 adult bed bugs for each blood sample, weighed them, fed them their respective samples, and weighed them again. He repeated the experiment six times.

The average mass of the bed bugs that fed on the clean blood increased by over 100 percent. Those that fed on the blood with the lowest BAC, 0.010, increased just 60 percent, and the number decreased for each increase in alcohol. The bed bugs that fed on the 0.100 BAC sample went up a mere 12.5 percent.

As for the eggs, the control groups laid an average of 44 after the feeding, while those that fed on the highest BAC laid an average of just 12.

It’s unclear whether the alcohol affected the adult bugs’ behavior or their offspring’s development, although future tests might attempt to measure both. Narain also plans to run tests on other drugs, although he wouldn’t officially disclose which.

Way toward pest control?

So, can we just knock back a few glasses of wine every night to keep the bed bugs away? Probably not. “I’m not going to suggest someone should consume alcohol to control bed bugs,” Narain said.

Ill health affects aside, it likely wouldn’t help curb an infestation. While the bed bugs do feed less on alcohol-laced blood, they still feed, and while they lay fewer eggs, up to 95 percent still hatch. And it just takes a few to create a nuisance.

Dini Miller, an entomologist and bed bug expert from Virginia Tech, agreed: “I don’t know what sort of implications it has ultimately, because unfortunately they still produce enough eggs to cause an infestation. So while they feed less, still, we’re not going to experience less of a problem. But it’s very interesting to know.”

Avoid Bed Bugs While You Vacation

Vacationing Bed Bugs

* Once you open your hotel room, pull back the sheets and inspect the mattress seams immediately, particularly in the corners. That is where you will see the telltale stains or spots of Bed Bug activity. If you see anything suspicious, notify the hotel management and change rooms immediately. Take a room far away from the previous room location. Or change hotels all together.

* Inspect the entire room before unpacking, this includes behind the headboard and in sofas/chairs. If any pests are spotted, change rooms immediately.

* If changing rooms is necessary, be sure that you DO NOT move to another room that is adjacent and/or directly above/below the infested room. Bed bugs can easily catch a ride via housekeeping carts, luggage and even through walls. If bed bugs are spreading, they typically do so by inhabiting the rooms closest to them first.

* Consider placing your suitcase in a plastic trash bag or protective cover during the duration of your trip to ensure that bed bugs cannot take up a residence and bring them back to Columbus, Ohio.

* When you finally get back to Columbus, Ohio, inspect your suitcases before bringing them into the house. Vacuuming your suitcase thoroughly before storing them away can help reduce the risk of bring home unwanted guests. Consider taking all your cloths and throwing them into the wash using hot water and then into the dryer on its hottest setting. This will kill any bed bugs or eggs that may have been brought home.

How To get rid of Bed Bugs.

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Getting rid of bed bugs isn’t the easiest process, and most cases of bed bug infestation will require treatment by a pest control professional like EnviroCare Pest Solutions. There are a variety of low-odor sprays, dusts, and aerosols that can be used to exterminate bed bugs. These must be applied to all areas where the bugs are are harboring as well as spaces where they might crawl or hide. The exterminating company can help determine if the mattress or furniture can be saved or must be discarded. Since beds cannot readily be treated with chemicals, it’s often necessary to discard infested mattresses and beds.

EnviroCare Pest Solutions may recommend certain forms of deep-cleaning such as scrubbing infested surfaces with a stiff brush to remove eggs, dismantling bed frames and furniture, walls, and moldings. Also we can give you options on encasing mattresses within special bags.
